Done Did Disney on a Dime (well...many dimes) LAH LAH's TR *Updated 3/17*

HERE WE GO!!!

Welcome to my seriously delayed Disney TR! We had a wonderful time and I can't wait any longer to share it with you all! Wanna learn more about us than the bare minimum? Check out our PTR here, or click on any of the links in my siggy for our previous trips. I'm happy to have you here and I hope you enjoy the ramblings of an excitable, Disney die-hard

I'm about to share the barest of basics with you. Are ya ready? It's gonna go by pretty quickly

OUR FAMILY:



DISNEY GOERS:



(sorry for the blurry pic...more on that later)

Melissa: 37, short, happy, likes to laugh, loves Jesus, loves her children, serving others, and DISNEY!

Michael: 15, tall, witty, funny, particular, oldest of 5 kids, plays volleyball and loves video games!

Elsa: 13, shortest, responsible, jolly, the lone sister, plays soccer, runs track, and loves to perform and sing!

STAY AT HOME-ERS:


Easton: 4, determined, silly, laughs a lot, loves being the center of attention and Toy Story ANYTHING!!

Chase: (almost) 3, reserved, smiley, goofy, clever, loves to eat and adores Thomas the Train!

Noah: 19 months, independent, super ticklish, super smiley, desperately wants to be in with the big kids, loves animals and his bear!


Thanks for joining, what I can only describe as a total-picture-overloaded, self indulgent, retelling of our August 5th-13th trip to the World...and I'm excited to get to relive it here, with you! So, hang on tight, grab some coffee or a soda, and let's get to know each other a little bit better!

I rode Alien Encounter one time, on my honeymoon. My DH now has a permanent scar on his pinky finger....I was TERRIFIED!! I grabbed onto his hand and wouldn't let go the whole time, so he walked out with a nice cut from my pretty "wedding nails." Ah....memories.... We have not yet tried the Stitch ride. I couldn't bring myself to do it after that!

The "rat's nest" is awesome! We may or may not have to do something like that for our next trip. The boys will be 8 and 6, and I am not so sure how they will handle being in the same bed! Glad to know they will give you as much bedding as you need for that!

Great update! Looking forward to the next!

I am enjoying your report, can you give us any tips on Ticket discounts? We have 4 day base tickets and we want to go to a water park for one day.

Our biggest discounts come in free dining, room discounts and the like. Our cheapest tickets came from the YES program that Disney does. I think they just raised the prices again though.

I think you will have to pay full price for the water park tickets. I don't know of any discounts, others might!

Have a great trip, and thanks for stopping by to read about ours!
